The first time we did the Polar Express in our car, Paul had to work. The kids had been begging to do it again. So, when Paul said he had some errands to run, I piled the kids in the car and called it the Polar Express. After the kids realized this wasn't just about seeing lights, and Paul realized his Polar Express wasn't as cool as mine...things changed.
We like a good competition around here.
Paul quickly had the funniest conductor voice ever, and was asking the kids who had the better Polar Express. He was trying so hard, but since I am the one telling the story...my lights were so much better. Even if Savannah was trying to save his feelings by telling him it was a tie. Whatevs Savannah, we know my lights were better.
I will admit Paul had much better treats, because he took the kids for pancakes and hot chocolate at IHOP afterwards. I already said I will have to really up my game next year, and now it is official.
PS Thank you Krystal for gifting us the Polar Express soundtrack, we definitely are going to get lots of use out of it.
